We Make House Calls
You love you the comfort of your own home. Perhaps you're also at a point in your life where it's difficult to get out of the house. The skilled Home Care services teams at AdventHealth make it possible for you to get the care you need without leaving your living room.
Under the direction of your physician, your highly trained at-home care staff will help keep your feet firmly planted on the road to recovery. With home health care services — including home IV therapy, advanced wound care, home rehab and more — you can enjoy benefits including a shorter hospital stay, faster healing, quicker recovery, and more personal attention.
Whole-Person Home Health Care
- Rehab in Comfort With Home Health Services
You just had a knee replacement and making it to the hospital for rehab will be painful and challenging. Or perhaps you're recovering from a sports-related injury. Rather than leaving the house and risking another injury, take advantage of the home rehab and therapies available within the AdventHealth network of care.
Our home rehab program is an innovative rehabilitation program for people recovering from orthopedic injuries as well as hip, knee, or shoulder joint replacements. Your team of therapists will work with you in the comfort of your own home to help you regain the strength and mobility you need to get back to enjoying the activities you love.
- In-Home Nursing Care
When you or your loved one get home from the hospital, or are dealing with a health condition at home, sometimes you just feel better knowing there's a nurse nearby. With the guidance of your physician and coordination by licensed medical professionals, we provide the following in-home nursing services geared especially toward patients who have post-surgery care needs; those with chronic illnesses; and seniors, whose unique care needs are often especially suited to home care:
Advanced Wound Care – We help people with chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation, and other conditions achieve the best healing outcome in the shortest amount of time.
Diabetes Management – We work closely with you to teach the skills necessary to manage diabetes and avoid serious complications.
Disease Management/Education – We help empower you to understand your disease, regulate your condition, and maintain your wellness, all of which translate to fewer trips to the hospital.
Enterostomy Training – For those who've had urostomies or colostomies, we provide training on how to manage long-term care of the wound, fistula, ulcer, and skin. We also help patients incorporate necessary diet and lifestyle changes so they can thrive after this kind of procedure.
Heart Failure Management – We work closely with you to teach the skills to manage your health after heart failure.
Incontinence Management – Convenient, in-home help for loss of bladder control.
Infusion Therapy – An alternative to oral treatment that administers medication intravenously. Traditionally only available in hospitals, specially trained nurses can now provide home IV therapy treatments.
Joint Recovery Program – A post-op program to promote faster recovery after hip or knee replacement surgery.
Medication Management/Education – We provide all the tools you need to take the worry out of missing your daily and weekly appointments with multiple medications.
Rehabilitation – In-home physical, occupational, and speech therapy saves you time and is more convenient than traveling to an appointment.
